Three cheers for this offering from Random House Audio and directed by May Wuthrich. Headstrong celebrates 52 women of the 20th century whose contributions to science make them role models in a field which has overlooked them historically.
A sense of clarity and importance is conveyed in Lauren Fortgang's narration of Swaby's concise biographies of female figures in twentieth-century science.
Passionate and feminine, Fortgang's voice is the perfect fit for a book that seeks to increase recognition for women in science.
